SPN Season 8 - Rough Road So Far

I've been looking at caps for season 8 and have been struck by the physical impact this season has had on most of the characters this season.  The only one not physically wrecked at this point is Dean but emotionally he's been broken down quite a bit too.  Here are caps from early in the season, mostly from 8.01 and then from 8.21.  I'm afraid it's only going to get worse.

Then








Now








Put next to each other, it's nice to see that some things have improved.





Then there's this.  From about as far out of the life to as far in as possible.



Sam and Dean aren't the only ones who've been through the wringer. Kevin and Cas look like whatever the cat dragged in.  At least they are both still alive, which is more than could be said for Benny.

From hiding out in a church to staring down Crowley.





From Purgatory to messed up protector of the now-stolen angel tablet.





Even without being spoiled for the last two episodes, I know it's going to get worse for a couple of these guys.  Hopefully everybody is still able to walk come the start of season 9.  Buckle up, we've still got a lot of bad road ahead.

Kevin looks about five years older now. Funny the subtle ways they make these things work.

I know, Kevin's change is pretty drastic.

Oh man, they have certainly been put through the ringer this season. What a roller coaster of hurt and stress (and good moments) - for all involved.

I'm impressed with how sick Sam looks - they've done a great job with his make up.

With Sam, I've been trying to figure out if it's all makeup or if Jared lost weight in his face over the season. (I also want to know if that was real ice in that bathtub and how they managed to cram Sam in there. You're a mean man, Mr. Edlund.)

I definitely think Jared has lost weight. Compared to the last couple of seasons.

And HA! I was looking closely at the ice. It's all too uniform to be real, so fake ice. (also real ice wouldn't last long under those lights I reckon). But I bet the water is cold because I am sure Jared would have wanted it to be. He looked genuinely cold.

(ooh now I need fic where Jared is actually really cold and miserable and Jensen wraps him up and brings him soup. What do they say about life imitating art? :D)

Ack, I didn't think of the heat from the lights. I just know how miserable it is to keep an arm or leg in ice water and can't imagine getting submersed in it. Sam being cold was convincing.

Poor guys have been put through the ringer! SPN make-up artists had to be working overtime this season (at least in the second half).

They probably just finished with the purgatory grime when it was time to launch into sick!Sam. They've been doing a good job.

Oh my poor babies!!
They all look so worse for wear (except for Dean - now that he is not covered in purgatory blood and dirt which was sorta sexy *cough*)

I believe Jared is definitely thinner..which i imagine he has done for the role.(and he had a broken rib which wouldn't have helped)
I think Jared has to work at keeping his weight and muscle mass up and he probably just stopped that for a while..plus the make up (eek but i love hurt Sam..so..)

The change in Kevin is huge. Osric was just saying (at NJ Con) that he was offered two roles but took SPN and is so glad he did..i am TOO!! He has got to play so many different facets of his character.

Great pic spam..thanks so much!

I didn't know Jared had a broken rib. That must have made for some miserable stunts. And oh man, your icon....

Osric really pulled off the farewell vid. He's grown a lot as an actor over the season. He's been fun to watch.

This picspam is awesome! The change in the characters is so clear: Dean's not all hard edges anymore, Sam's back hunting and hurting, Kevin's not afraid of Crowley, Cas has found a purpose... I can't wait to see what happens!

I'm looking forward to it too. It will be cool to do this with shots from the final episode to see where they end up. I gotta think it's gonna get worse, especially for Sam.
